4.    We raise up the ministry of the Gospel – especially: … March’s “Mission of the Month” – the water-well projects of Samaritan’s Purse (donations totaled $795);  … all our congregational ministries – in addition to our School: Paul’s Buffet, the 7th Street Feast, Meals That Matter, our KKLO Broadcast & Facebook Live simulcast, the Community Garden, Kid’s Connection, and more – that the Lord would use them (and us) to bring people to know His saving grace.
